Year Review 2018

2018 ‘Dark Mode’

2018 was truly the year ‘Dark Mode’ was enabled. MacOS, Android, Windows and services-galore, all enabled ‘dark mode’ colour schemes.

I had my own dark mode of a year and quietly got on with learning some more. The learning list never seems to shrink. I added and crossed off more skills than ever previously.

My 2018 Year Review – personal learning, projects and what was posted in 2018.

Pretty pleased that Appscope, a directory of progressive web apps (PWAs) have accepted Colordinates into the entertainment category!

Made it as an experiment to work with geolocation browser API, the app returns a colour value based on your geographic location. Read more about Colordinates on my folio site.

10 Years Blogging

According to my archives, today marks my 10th year of blogging!

I joined Tumblr in September 13th 2008 wanting to write some casual posts and as a good excuse to do some blog theme building.

My first post, ‘Laser Staring Cats’. Later, I managed to tip off TechCrunch about a Google Chrome promotion.

Print Theme for Tumblr

Since then I built and released my own Tumblr Theme, celebrated my 1000th post in 2011 and made the move to in 2016.

I  (somewhat) regularly post about #web, #tech, and #eco news. You can also find out more about memy web work and personal posts. Plenty to read here – a decades worth! Heres to 10 more!

Thanks for reading, Paul
